This morning in our communion service we were encouraged to think of the challenge that accompanies our viewing of the cross of Christ. As we think of what the cross really means and what it meant for God to give up His Son, how should our lives be impacted?
Two verses of a hymn by Isaac Watts came to mind...the verse half of the first verse and the last half of the last...
"When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died;
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all."
Driving home I saw the following personalized license plate:
E Z 2 C Y I O
Think about it...What message was the driver of this new, expensive truck trying to convey?
In like manner, when we look at the cross it should be easy for us to see why we owe so much. Christ gave His all at no cost to us. What should our response be? We owe Him so much. We could never repay Him. He doesn't ask us to. He has extended grace so rich and free.
Can't we give Him our soul, our life, our all?
